I guess Hope and Change has gone by the wayside and now they’re looking for something along the lines of “it would have been even worse without us” or some such nonsense. Funny though, if they’re looking to rebrand this catastrophic failure of a president, they might want to reconsider running an image of him with a red star.
The five-pointed red star, a pentagram without the inner pentagon, is a symbol of communism. It is sometimes understood to represent the five fingers of the worker’s hand, as well as the five continents. A lesser known suggestion is that the five points on the star were intended to represent the five social groups that would lead Russia to communism: the youth, the military, the industrial labourers, the agricultural workers or peasantry, and the intelligentsia. It was one of the emblems, symbols, and signals representing the Soviet Union under the rule of the Communist Party, along with the hammer and sickle.
Well, at least Elle McPherson’s on board.
